The model of therapy I use
I am an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and CBT Therapist offering clients the opportunity to explore current problems in their lives and to see how their lives may be affected by issues outside their awareness. This enables the client to unearth and discover potential and future possibilities. My work is underpinned by psychologists such as Peter Levine, Bessel Van Der Kolk and Babette Rothschild. In therapy we can explore how the body stores traumatic events or an accumulation of events and how this can manifest as anxiety, stress or depression, which can often leave us feeling confused, scared and disconnected from those around us.

In combination with this I take a creative approach to therapy, such as working with dreams, art and body awareness including meditation and mindfulness. I offer a safe space where a person feels held and supported within the boundaries of a therapeutic relationship.

My experience in counselling
I have been working with children and young people within the education system for the last fifteen years in a therapeutic capacity both in primary and secondary settings. My client group includes young people with complex trauma, eating disorders, self-harm and ASD. I also work with teachers in a mentoring capacity within the context of supporting them to work with young people with additional needs.

I also practiced adult counselling services in a primary school offering short term therapy to staff.

In private practice I work 1:1 with adults and young people incorporating talking therapy, the arts, yoga and meditation. My experience has shown me that words do not always fully convey how we feel but by exploring other modalities we can reach depths of understanding about self that have previously been hidden.

I specialise in
Adolescence and Adults; anxiety, stress, depression, trauma and relationship issues.

I was drawn to becoming a Counsellor

My journey into personal therapy was unconventional as I decided to train as a therapist before I had ever explored therapy. I was working with very vulnerable children in a mentoring capacity, however, I felt unskilled and unprepared to work with young people who had experienced such trauma. While training as a therapist I embarked on four years of personal therapy and discovered what a life-changing experience it was. Once I connected with the right therapist I was able to delve into my own experiences of childhood and how it related to me as an adult.
